Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic 6/9
By Bud Parr • Issue #73 • View online
Looking back, looking forward. I enjoyed thinking about this tweet leading the newsletter about how different things were in web development a decade ago. Almost 10 years ago:  October, 19th, 2008. Tom Preston-Werner made the first commit to “autoblog,” what would become Jekyll. There were earlier static site generators and many after, but none quite so influential. Now, one reason we’ve been moving away from the term “static site generator” is that the tools are increasingly integrated into a larger build process. I can’t predict the future, but the map is clear. The tools of the future will need to be very flexible for a vast array of use-cases.

10 years ago today:
• jQuery was battling Dojo, YUI, and mootools for dominance
• node.js wasn't a thing
• Firebug was the only real developer tool
• Chrome wasn't released yet
• nobody took JavaScript devs seriously

Things change a lot in 10 years.
